Anesthesiologists discussing a case

If you are having surgery at Mass. Eye and Ear, you will be cared for by one of our 30+ Anesthesiologists or 15+ Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists. Your anesthesiologist will work with you and your surgeon to determine if your surgery requires you to undergo general anesthesia or local anesthesia.
